manner and cause of the death of Geo.

attention and was struck by the engine
and thrown toward tho north-bound

Bishop Vincent
The inspiration of Bishop Vincent's
"That Boy's Mister,"
delivered in the West Presbyterian
Church last evening, Is th» promotion
of the female sex in womntihood.
By wit ami pathos in personal remi
niscences commingled with a e iron in
spect but large measure of idealiza
tion, he on tho one hand, "took off"
woman on many of her foibles and at
tho same time furnished her the hope,
ambition ami enthusiasm of progress
in health, character and? usefulness
tho other hand, he provided
for his large audience an evening of
delightful entertainment.
Ho Is giandly eulogistic of woman,
but blended his encomium with
rhetorical
cism as
healthy.
